On a long, summer Sunday afternoon you could do worse than spend some time reading the N.Y. Times. There are always a variety of opinions to think about and argue about. Today the Times has a collection of opinions on what higher gas prices mean to American society. The varied ideas range from a suggestion that high gas prices accentuate the differences between higher and lower income people because of the necessity of gas in American lives to cheering thoughts about how high gas prices will stimulate faster development of alternative fuel. Not all of the writers can be correct and only time will reveal which guesses come closer to the truth, but all of them are thoughtful and worth considering as we suffer through the changes we’ve all felt from higher gas prices.
